Spain won the World Cup and I couldn’t be happier. There were moments that I wasn’t sure that they were going to pull it off – they don’t score many goals.
I have to say that the final match was pretty horrible – it was not a beautiful game. Too many fouls, yellow and red cards flying all around and extra time. I’m so glad it didn’t go to penalty kicks though – I didn’t want Iker Casillas to have to deal with that.
After Iniesta scored the winning goal Casillas, the keeper and team Captain, was crying tears of joy. It brought tears to my eyes. But, I do wonder if he was relieved that it didn’t go to penalty kicks ;-)
